Just another example of religion giving people excuses to act like fuging assholes.

Blaming her religion for this is stupid. Nothing in her religion would promote this kind of action. Just the opposite actually. If she had acted in the way her religion suggests, none of this would have happened.

People don't need to be religious to justify themselves for being assholes. Both religious and non-religious do it every day with no outside assistance whatsoever.

Also on the topic of stupid arguments, the logic behind her message is pretty dumb too.

The Biblical tithe would mean 10% of her total paycheck.

The gratuity would have been 18% of whatever her meal cost.

Unless that Applebees location charges some unheard of prices, I'm pretty sure her tithe is going to be a significantly larger amount than her tip.

You can thus conclude that not only Is the lady in the middle of this story a bit of a wench, but she's also kinda dumb when it comes to math.

Praise the Lord and pass the Potato Twisters! I went to Applebee's with a few friends and my savior. "Jesus," I said, "there is more to life than loaves and fishes! If your father, the good Lord, hadn't intended for us to eat their delicious Sizzlin' N'awlins Skillet, He wouldn't have created Applebee's on the eighth day." Jesus kicked off his sandals, grabbed a strawberry limeade, and soaked up the delightful ambiance. Hallelujah! We discussed weddings, miracles and that trick, Mary Magdalen, over Southwest Shrimp Fettuccine. It was a real nice evening until the uppity waitress brought the bill. She charged me $6 for serving me. Aaaaaw hell no! I told Jesus his daddy doesn't even get $6. I don't care what the tipping policy clearly stated on the menu says. Nobody gets 18% from me. I said, "Jesus, have your daddy turn that girl into a pillar of salt. Demand she kill her first born. SMITE HER!" Jesus started talking that love and forgiveness nonsense. I said okay, wrote a note on my credit card slip, and left without giving that waitress a penny. The next day I decided I hadn't been ignorant enough. I called that restaurant and demanded that they fire everybody because my note was all over the internet. That's the proper Christian thing to do! Don't forgive. Get even. Applebee's sucked right up to me because my $30 will make or break them, and they know it! I might have said something about a plague on both their franchises, but I'm not certain. Bottom line: If you don't want to tip, if you are a hypocrite, if you follow the teachings of God only when you feel like it, Applebee's is YOUR neighborhood grill and bar. Can I get an amen!?! http://www.yelp.com/biz/applebees-neighborhood-grill-and-bar-saint-louis-7

People don't need to be religious to justify themselves for being assholes. Both religious and non-religious do it every day with no outside assistance whatsoever.

so saying karma is a bitch is quite the double irony no?

this is classic what were you thinking? what was the pastor thinking was going to be accomplished by her snide remark? what was the server thinking was going to be accomplished in posting a pic of this?

a cautionary tale of self righteousness coming back to bite you.

But its also another example of a group going after someone who holds a religious position simply because they don't like her religion.

I don't see anything wrong with that.

That's the problem with religion. Everyone gets to make up their own rules as they go along and expect the rest of the world to "respect my faith."

The term for that thing you don't see anything wrong with is "bigotry".

That's the problem with religion. Everyone gets to make up their own rules as they go along and expect the rest of the world to "respect my faith."

I don't know of a single religion that says "just do whatever you want and justify it because you're one of us".

The whole Idea actually flies in the face of belief systems in general.

I guess that explains why there's just that one solitary denomination of Christianity huh.
